Samsung's galaxy just expanded by yet another member, with the just-announced Galaxy Core. Samsung's Galaxy Core is aimed at the lower-end of the smartphone spectrum, but does have dual-SIM support.


The Galaxy Core features a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal flash storage backed up by an expandable microSD card slot. We also find a 4.3-inch WVGA TFT LCD with a 800x480 resolution, 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with an LED flash and a VGA front-facer. Samsung's Galaxy Core arrives with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with the usual TouchWiz on top.


There'a an 1,800mAh battery inside, and 3G services. What makes this stand out a little when compared to other Galaxy smartphones, is the fact that Samsung will release a single-SIM edition in July, which will be preceded by the dual-SIM version in May. Samsung says the dual-SIM-capable Galaxy Core will be able to access both SIM cards "simultaneously", but how this will work exactly hasn't been explained.
